Tatum Raetz graduated from Kindergarten with her classmates today. But what was different with her is she had to do it without her daddy watching. Daryl Raetz, a police officer, was killed in the line of duty 3 days ago. He was hit by an SUV operated by a man who fled the scene and has since been arrested.
Today, for at least a brief moment in time, little Tatum received comfort from dozens of daddy’s Phoenix police officer friends at her kindergarten graduation. They lined the ceremony and cheered her on as she moves forward in her short life. It was a moment she – and those around her – will never ever forget.
